In this issue:  

Eastside Pathways has been working on amplifying each organization's individual effect through collective impact and now it is extends into a new model for the Eastside: working with community "promotores ."

Stephanie Cherrington expresses how thankful she is for the passion, dedication, and drive that the Partnership brings to our community through the collective work we do together.

In the past, the Backbone staff scheduled one-on-one meetings each time a new organization was interested in learning more about the partnership. The meetings were fruitful but became unsustainable as the partnership grew. So in September 2015, Eastside Pathways 101 events arose out of necessity. 

New Partner Profile: 

Seattle Education Access provides higher education advocacy and opportunity to young people struggling to overcome poverty and adversity throughout King County. They hope to connect with non-traditional students, provide financial support and personal attention and empower young people living in poverty.
